Posted new graphic for the Devling Abusers unit.

I will update the Unit sheet in the first post instead of posting it over and over and taking up more space then what is needed.

I'd suggest giving that first line slightly weaker attacks

Devlings = little Devs
Devs = Developers. :twisted:

When you first see this topic, how can you not think of a faction of small devs running around causing chaos? :lol:

you know after having a good look through the forums, there are so many faction that should never be. Im not saying all of them but some.

This is not one of them, this is almost my favourite idea so far and i am looking forward to seeing it in action.

They should have an attack, "Fork Wesnoth" that splits the game into two different games. :twisted:

Okay, didn't get much done over the weekend, naturally.

I've added new art for the "Overgrown Devling" line and the "Devling Sneak" line.

The Imp has been altered into "Devling Attackers" to better represent the same units getting better.

What remains are to develop the Overgrown Devling line with another choise of warrior and Hero, hence (2).

Comments on the look of the units are welcomed. I've made some minor adjustments.

----
Devling Lurker

This unit is ment to have a "lurk" ability much like the wose and ranger ambush ability, -only; Since Devlings are so small and this unit in particular being really sneaky it would be able to hide almost anywhere.

Grassland, Savanna, Forest, Tropical Forest, Hills. This is my suggestion for terrain that will conceal this unit.
